Recreate yourself through the power of art (in this case, digital art). Here, I took a silly picture of myself.
Step 1: Sketch
Using that picture as a reference, I digitally sketched it on SAI art program, making some minor changes, like where my eyes are looking or my hair.
Step 2: Final Product!
From that sketch and photo, you recreate through digitally painting yourself and addding a few exaggerations (ie: my hair and skin color and pointed ears), and viola! You have recreated yourself into something maybe a bit more interesting, like a goblin!
